"Big Red"






"Little Pinny"










Sugar Pine "Mariposa"

This is a Sugar Pine in ziricote and European spruce. The 12 fret neck, wider fingerboard and slotted peghead, give this guitar a "classical" feel.

Its owner , Jim Willin, named it Mariposa because of the butterfly like figuring in the ziricote headstock.

" The best thing about the Blanchard experience is to receive a guitar that exceeds expectations in tone, appearance and workmanship... Thanks for a guitar that gets better every time I pick it up."
Jim Willin
